Since its addition in 2004, the Millennium Park's
Crown Fountain is one of the star attractions of the the city. This interactive art piece with its dual glass towers of 50 feet (15.2 meters) in a huge black granite pool has LED screens that projects digital close-up faces of Chicagoans. The display lasts for five minutes which ends with an illusion of water spouting from the mouth much like a classic gargoyle fountain. Water cascades down the towers when the video is not on and is recycled to be used again. A must visit, especially to beat the heat on a summer day.
